Matthew Bunn: U.S. Must Press Efforts to Improve Security of Nuke Materials

Some 25,000 nuclear weapons lie in the arsenals of at least nine countries, but the highest-probability danger the world faces is not a full-scale war. It is, rather, that a small group of terrorists could grab just enough highly enriched uranium from a poorly guarded site and assemble a crude device that could nevertheless devastate a city. The U.S. Congress and the administration of President George W. Bush must pay greater attention to this threat, nuclear security expert Matthew Bunn said at a AAAS briefing on Capitol Hill.
